Captivates™ GL encapsulates

Ashland makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

Captivates™ GL encapsulates are encapsulates containing a matrix structure, produced using JetCutter™ Technology — rotating cutting wires that create hydrogel beads from a continuous jet of viscous fluid. The resulting droplets are transformed into solidified beads through various gelation techniques including thermal gelation and ion exchange — producing a uniform bead matrix that can contain high levels of encapsulated material. Naturally derived materials such as agar, gellan gum, alginate and carrageenan are used as the matrix material. Captivates GL encapsulates are produced in sizes ranging from 250 μm to 3000 μm in diameter and can be used to encapsulate a wide range of materials including oils, pigments, abrasives and harmless bacteria. Delivery triggers include dilution, pressure and pH.
